Spicy Thai Green Curry Mussels

Of course you can’t leave Mussel Bar without trying some mussels! The Spicy Thai Green Curry Mussels are simmered in a broth with a kick that will keep you coming back for more. Surf for peanuts, cilantro, and basil in the light yet creamy sauce. Don’t laugh at the big spoon on the side either, chances are you’ll end up drinking this broth like soup. 

 

Pomme Frites

These fries are deliciously crispy. They come with an aioli trio that will keep your taste buds on their toes. Between the trio of sauces and the spicy Thai green curry broth, don’t be surprised when these fries fly … off the table.

Chile Salt Grilled Salmon

This tender salmon is smothered in a dry rub and char-grilled to perfection. The fish is paired with fresh chunks of avocado and a sweet mango salsa to cut the saltiness. A tasty arugula salad with cilantro, red onion, radishes, and a light dressing also balances the dish.
